[ARCHIVED] Vote for Council Bluffs!

Peoples Choice Award_Intranet (2)

The Iowa DOT Rail Relocation Project associated with the interstate relocation in Council Bluffs has been nominated for a national award! The Top 12 national projects are competing for the People's Choice Award, which comes with a $10,000 check for a charity or transportation-related scholarship of the winners’ choosing. VOTE TODAY!

"I can personally attest to the Iowa project’s worthiness for national recognition. This project accomplished what should have been an impossibility: getting 3 railroads and the IDOT to agree and implement major track changes. This effort included transferring ownership of dozens of parcels between the city, the state, and the 3 railroads; abandoning old track and constructing new. The end result was improved efficiency for the railroads, reduced interstate construction costs, and for the city of Council Bluffs; fewer crossings and consolidation of some tracks into a single corridor." Said Public Works Director, Greg Reeder.

Voting ends at midnight, eastern time, on September 21. You can vote once every 24 hours. Show your support at vote here:
